Chapter 266 He Regretted It
When Eric opened his eyes and saw the familiar furnishings around him, he sat up in shock. He was
about to rip off the needle stuck in his arm and leave.

The butler and servants at Eric’s sides stopped him. No one dared to speak for a moment.
Eric’s expression became nasty as he spoke with a firm tone.
“I’m going to look for Nicole…”

“Watch the door and don’t let him take a single step out of this room!”
Old Master Ferguson ordered as he turned to leave.
Even if he had to use extreme measures, Old Master Ferguson could not let Eric, who he raised
through painstaking efforts, lay wasfe to liiliiself brrause of a womari.
Time would smooth everything out eventually. Once Eric accepted this reality, he would be able to
think straight again.
By that time, that woman would no longer be important.
The air was silent and cold.
They did not dare to leave without permission, but they were also afraid that Eric would fight back
